New to secure a spot as the Top Ten Best Seller of 2014 is the Ford Fusion. Being the only new comer to the top ten list means that the Ford Fusion has stepped up and has become a competitor that wont be going anywhere any time soon. The Fusion is one out of two of Ford’s models to make it on the list showing that Ford is a fierce competitor in the automotive market. The 2014 year was one of the best years for the automotive market reaching sales of almost 16.5 million cars sold for the year making this one of the most competitive years for a top selling spot.
The 2015 Ford Fusion arrived at George Waikem Ford’s Massillon showroom recently. This gorgeous model builds off the success of its recent redesign, and everyone gets a backup camera in the 2015 model. You’ll also see some new packages and a few new colors in this year’s model.
All-in-all, the Fusion remains one of America’s favorite vehicles thanks to European styling cues, great fuel economy, advanced technology and plenty of engine choices to maximize power and efficiency.
Perhaps no vehicle had a bigger launch in 2013 than the all-new Ford Fusion. Now the 2014 Ford Fusion arrives at George Waikem Ford with that same pomp and circumstance that has made the Fusion one of America’s most popular vehicles yet again.
With European styling, technological innovation inside and out, and some all-new features to improve fuel economy and safety, the 2014 Ford Fusion is a great addition to any garage.
The Ford Motor Company says 2014 will be its busiest year ever.
The company will hire 5,000 workers in the United States next year on the heels of a record setting 2013.
“We saw unprecedented growth in the United States this year, especially in the midsize and utility segments,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “With the addition of 16 new products to our showroom, including Ford Mustang, our momentum continues.”
The Ford Motor Co. has teamed with Coca-Cola to build a Ford Fusion Engeri model with Coca-Cola’s PlantBottle Technology. Basically, this car’s seat cushions, seat backs, head restraints and door panel and headliners are made entirely from renewable materials.
This Ford Fusion Engeri research vehicle is the first to use PET plastics in the fabric of a vehicle. PET is a durable, lightweight plastic also known as polyethylene terephthalate. It’s used by both Ford and Coke in a variety of products including plastic bottles, fabrics and carpets. According to Coca-Cola and Ford, PlantBottle Technology is a plastic bottle made from plants, and more than 400,000 barrels of oil have been saved thanks to this technology.
Ford says if PlantBottle fabrics were used in the majority of Ford models, it would save 295,000 gallons of gasoline and 6,000 barrels of oils.
Ford is investing $555 Million and 1,400 new jobs at their Flat Rock, Mich., Assembly Line. In total Ford is creating nearly 6,500 U.S. jobs this year, and is aiming for a goal of 12,000 new hourly jobs by 2015.
For the first time the Ford Fusion will be made in the United States. A testament to Ford’s efforts to bring jobs back to America. Because of this expansion, the Ford Fusion’s availability will increase by 30 percent. The 2013 Fusion is setting records for sales.

At the same time, Ford is continuing its massive investment in America by creating another 1,400 jobs.”
The age-old argument between the Domestic and Import has raged on since what feels like forever. And for the past decade it seemed rather one-sided.
That is until auto industry research and consulting company Strategic Vision released its 2013 Total Quality Index study recently. Strategic Vision has been at this since 1994 and looks at factors from traditional counting of reported problems to examining subtle elements that influence car-buying decisions.

According to Ford‘s press release, the 1.5-liter engine benefits from signature EcoBoost turbocharging, direct fuel injection and variable valve timing, and has been designed to be even more fuel efficient and offer high levels of refinement, quietness and performance.
The Fusion, redesigned in 2013, is obviously attracting customer’s eyes. The Fusion posted its best -ever sales month — selling more than 30,000 units nationally in the month of March and more than 80,000 vehicles in the first quarter of 2013.
